Out of the blog

Well, I’ve been tagged by Croutonboy (actually, the entire state of Illinois has been tagged by him… this could take a while), but that’s going to have to wait.

First, I want to let my loyal readers (there has to be at least one out there… right? I asked, right?? Hello?? Is there anyone out there???) know that I will be away from a computer for the next few days as Honey Mustard, The Peanut Butter and The Jelly and I are going on vacation…

To Disney World…

You read that right… Disney World… the Evil Empire…

Five days of ‘The Mouse’…and princesses… and heat… and long, long lines… and ridiculously high prices… and…

And the scary thing is… I am excited…

What’s wrong with me?

I’ve been to Disney twice before. Once when I was a child with my parents and my brother, then in 1997 with my wife and ALL THE IN-LAWS. That’s right… ALL OF THEM… All thirteen of us… driving… from Illinois to Florida. And this was a mere six months after our wedding…

I would tell you more about that trip, but I seem to be repressing a lot of it.

Having said and experienced that, I am still looking forward to this trip. I realize it’s the first time The PB and The J will have ever been on a plane, the first time HoMu and I have been on a plane since 9/11 (mainly because in November of that year we discovered that “we” were pregnant), the first time we’ve ever done a true vacation with only the four of us…

Regardless of all of that… I am still excited.

Is there something wrong with me? Or is it because I am going with my children and I will be able to see the park anew through their eyes?

So, this will be the final post from me for a while (except for C-boy’s meme, which I will post later today)

I’ll see you all when I get back...

You will have a great time. It is not wrong to be excited.

dude, nothing wrong with you. Once you look past the corporate behemoth it's become and it's masterful manipulation of the human mind, they put together a pretty fun show. And the kids will dig it! Tell me how Captain Eo is...

Captain Eo has been gone for more than a decade.

Thank God.
